Simple Mini Okonamiyaki

My first homemade not quite Japanese food! haha.... Does that sound weird or what! Japanese food usually made of mostly Japanese ingredients and sauce (do I need a Japanese frying pan too?), which I can't even find it in my living area. So, if I wanted to taste test it then I have to figure it out myself. And here's what I did....

Ingredients for Okonamiyaki Batter :

190gm all purpose flour (original recipe : tempura flour))
200ml chicken broth (original recipe : dashi)
1 egg, beaten

Add in ingredients :
200gm prawns, roughly chopped
100gm crab stick/meat, roughly chopped
180gm cabbage, finely sliced
2 tbsp pickled scallion/ginger, chopped
2 tbsp bonito flakes
dash of ground pepper

#Topping : nori, bonito, mustard mayo, mayonnaise & chili sauce/okonomi sauce.

Method :

- combine all okonamiyaki batter ingredients and mix well.
- stir in all the add in ingredients and mix well.
- pre-heat frying pan, add in oil just slightly coat the pan over medium heat.
- pour okonamiyaki mixture on the frying pan and cook untill brown.

- flip and cook the other side the same way.
- remove from pan once it's ready.
- drizzle mustard mayo, mayonnaise and a tiny bit of chili sauce.
- sprinkle with nori and bonito flakes, then serve.

Ta...da.... Not bad huh! For me, as long as my kids love it I think it's a good recipe cause my son is a very picky eater. So, enjoy!

Insightful and informative post. The dish looks amazing. Never tried this before. Interesting use of Bonito flakes. Wow.

Beautiful dish Kristy! A bonus that you son likes it too! Even the mayo and mustard on top is artfully placed, and with the bonito flakes on top! Very interesting.

♥Sugar♥Plum♥Fairy♥ said...

Oh dear Kristy ,am back to tell u how muc we enjoyed this one, didn have half the stuff ,n bonito flakes aint something we find here ,but had to make it and used fresh ginger, pickled gherkins , shrimps ,spinach ,green peas and shallots chopped and served with chopped shallots , mustard , coleslaw sauce and sweet chilli sauce......delicious aint the word and will soon make more to click pics and blog about it too.......and by then if i stumble upon bonito flakes ,great ,else will try something out .....

pegasuslegend said...

reminds me of a crab cake which I've never had because of onions in them, I love these and am going to try and make them have lots of company this weekend, so this will be a great orderve! your post was very cute and funny I always enjoy reading :)

MaryMoh said... this. Would be so good for breakfast fact any time, any where :D I love Japanese food. Love all those bonito flakes.

penny aka jeroxie said...

so yummy. I want to make some too for wkend breakfast.

Mary said...

This looks great. I read somewhere that tempura-like flour can be made at home by mixing 1 cup all-purpose flour with 2 tablespoons cornstarch.
I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Super recipe, Kristy! I did an Okonamiyaki last year and had so much fun with it! My kids really loved it. I didn't use quite so much seafood in mine though. Great photos!

CheapAppetite said...

I love okonomiyaki! Too bad I can't make it at home. I have no non stick pan:( Not that because I'm cheap though. lol.:) Yours look so yummy kristy!

alwayswinner786 said...

Yum Yum ! Okonomiyaki is too delicious and you share an easy version of the recipe!

3 hungry tummies said...

This is our favourite! Your version looks fantastic!

AppleC said...

That looks fantastic. BUt since I'm unfamiliar with some ingredients I can't imagine the flavor or texture. Can you describe both?
Also, you have Chicken "booth" do you mean "broth" because then you have something about "dashi" next to it?

Cheah said...

Looks delicious. Agree with Gypsy Chef, can't keep up with you! You're such a diligent blogger!

My Little Space said...

Alwayswinner : Thanks alot!

3HTummies : Thanks!

Joanne : Oh...yes, it's chicken broth actually! Thank you for reminding me, I've just made the correction. It tastes like Asian savory pancake...without any sugar sweet flavour! So now, maybe you can imagine the flavour!

Cheah : Wow, you've been so busy lately! I thought you're going to a blind date this coming weekend, right? Have fun and do let me know how's the meet up!

Thanks for stopping by ladies and have a wonderful day!

Cheers, Kristy

Seems easy to do. Might try this one day.

About the kuih in Kampar hoh, the charsiewlohmaifan stall got green kuih meh? I thought they only sell wutaugou and hamgou?? Or did u mean the morning market? or the night makan makan market area? Did u mean the "Ah Chai kuih?", just right infront of the chasiew lohmaifan stall? I haven't eat for quite a while.. I love their lohmaichee... The green kuih, kuih talam (green below and white above, no rice) is it? That's nyonya kuih ler..:)
Eh, when are u going back again? Maybe can meet up :)

Elin said...

Kristy...that is a good one. Nutritious and delicious! Thanks for sharing :)

My Little Space said...

Wendy : It's the morning market, 3rd or 4th stall(the one next to the newspaper stall)! They sell char siew glutinous rice, kaya sweet white glutinous, some nyonya kuih etc. The green kuih is the one with green & white layers!

Elin : Thanks alot!

Thanks for stopping by my friends! Have a wonderful day.


wendyywy @ Table for 2 or more..... said...

Oh.... U know what, I rarely rarely go to Morning market ever since Form 1. I go daily when I was in form 1 to do marketing for my mom, but after I went to morning session school, I rarely go to morning market, unless I have something to buy. After left school, lagi la never go. EVen now when I go back, rarely go to Kampar wet market. Maybe once in 2 years!!! So, I practically don't know where is where :) and now there' tesco...

Sam said...

Awesome, awesome. I love Japanese food. If only they made a good sandwich. This is beautiful really I mean it. Amazing Keri

Joy said...

KRISTY omg I LOVE LOVE LOVE okonamiyaki -- my friend first introduced it to me a few years ago. The bonito flakes really make this dish, now i can make my OWN okonamiyaki!!!!!!

This could be dangerous...I could easily polish at least 10 of these. No self control -_-
